Derby Day 2016

Yesterday was Kentucky Derby day, the unofficial kickoff to my favorite month on the sporting calendar.

It begins with the Derby, it ends with the Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600, each the day before Memorial Day unless weather pushes it back on the calendar.

The grace and elegance of the horses in Louisville, to the horsepower of open and closed cockpit automobiles.

Congratulations to Nyquist on winning the first leg of the Triple Crown, and let the speculation begin as to whether or not horse racing has another phenomenal horse on its hands as was American Pharaoh a year ago.
